only learned how to do it this morning

i could have paid someone on wordpress $129 to do it for me, but i felt i was up to the challenge

cheaper too

some of the images haven’t appeared yet but i’m working on that

you can still access stitchedupmama via the original blog

but you can now access it all from the heading at the top of this page

best of all, i can edit both blogs from the one place …

feelling quite smug!

new book

so thrilled …

this newly published book of crochet art is inspirational and shows that the sky’s the limit as far as crochet is concerned

included is my matriarchs piece, featuring crochet as applique

you can preview the whole book here (and also buy it) –

heartfelt thanks to everyone who worked so hard to put this book together!

freeform heart

i was invited to contribute a freeform crochet heart and/or flowers by prudence mapstone, who is a renowned crochet artist

prudence is taking the display of contributions from around the world with her to all the craft fairs in australian cities, including hobart at the end of this month

this is my attempt!
